A throwback to 1990s New York, Brooklyn native Joey BadA$$ stood out from the pack by being himself. Rather than follow melodic, catchy trends of his generation, he chose to inject insightful street tales and socio-political issues in his rhymes, with sample-heavy production that gained him a cult-like following. He released his highly regarded debut mixtape, 1999, on June 12, 2012, followed by Rejex in September, and Summer Knights on July 1, 2013. His debut studio album, B4.Da.$$, was released on January 20, 2015. His second studio album All-Amerikkkan Badass was released on April 7, 2017.Not only is Joey one of the most skilled rappers on the scene, but he is well on his way to superstardom as an actor with several credits on the small screen.
Nas, Tupac Shakur, Black Thought, MF DOOM, J Dilla, Andre 3000, Jay Z, and The Notorious B.I.G.
